Cruising in at 4.8% ABV, Pirate Life’s latest can release ‘Tropical Pale’ calls on famed N.Z. hop varietals Wai-iti, Riwaka and Kohatu for their trademark fruity punch. Aussie staple Enigma lends lifted notes of raspberry and crushed grape, while a lighter filter pass has bumped up the concentration and overall juice bomb appeal. Woah…
Visually, it’s sunny and bright lemon in colour with a touch of haze. The palate is clean and fruit driven, a lively combination of passionfruit, citrus and fresh red berry. Oats lend a delicate and creamy mouthfeel while a considered reduction in bitterness guides Tropical towards the session end – great news for those on the look-out for a refreshing summer staple.
